“A l’chaim for Israel” (Naomi Levin)
VICTORIAN Premier John Brumby raised his glass to Israel and to the local Jewish community at a cocktail party on June 9, which served as a delayed Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration.
Brumby commended the Jewish community both for its strong advocacy to stop hate crime and its support earlier in the year for the victims of Victoria’s bushfires.
